What You Should Know
Outside catering is not allowed at Cosmopolitan, which has its own catering staff on hand to provide food for your wedding reception. The venue allows couples to create customized menus to suit their wedding reception dinner needs. The venue offers a list of recommended vendors for a variety of other services.
Cosmopolitan has a grand outdoor entrance that sets the tone from the moment guests arrive in the parking lot. There's a covered drop-off area right at the building's front doors where limo drivers and other chauffeurs can let wedding party members and guests enter the building in style. A spacious pre-function area provides space for guests to gather before they make their way into one of the two ballrooms at Cosmopolitan.
Reviews for Cosmopolitan praise the venue's staff and menus but note that Cosmopolitan does host more than one event per day, so there may be some event space overlap in the venue's public spaces. You'll have exclusive use of the room you rent, and if you rent both, you can have the whole place to yourself.
Cosmopolitan is the second generation event facility to occupy the building, and some reviews may use the business' old name, the Chalet. Thanks to recent renovation efforts, Cosmopolitan is a fresh, modern place to host a wedding event.
Enjoy these extra perks as part of your wedding cost at Cosmopolitan:
- In-house event planning staff with decades of experience
- Private bridal suite changing rooms attached to both ballrooms

I can't say enough good things about Eileen, Scott, and rest of the staffs at Cosmopolitan! Our venue went bankrupt only a month before our wedding and as anyone could imagine, it was a nightmare. Thankfully, the Cosmopolitan was able to accommodate us and Eileen was amazingly helpful, responsive and caring, helping us transition our wedding over to the new venue. She answered all of our questions and, given how stressed out we were, made it such an easy experience. Scott, our maitre d, was extremely friendly, meticulous, detail oriented and helpful as well. We couldn't have asked for better. Our guests raved about the quality and quantity of the food and the wonderful indoor/outdoor space. All in all, what started out as a potential disaster, ended up working out for the best! I highly recommend Cosmopolitan to any bride, or anyone looking for an upscale venue. Eileen, Scott and the rest of the staff will go above and beyond to make your experience absolutely amazing!
We are one of the devastated people that were affected by the bankrupt Atrium Country Club. Cosmopolitan was able to accommodate our original date. They also were so wonderful and compassionate regarding our dilemma. They are giving us more than our original menu and best of all, piece of mind. I want to thank Eileen and Scott for making this wedding possible for our daughter and monetarily helping us too. Looking forward to a wonderful wedding.
My wedding was in April 2017. Our special day exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Eileen & Scott. My husband and I couldn't have asked for anything more.! Such a beautiful venue!
My daughter’s wedding at the Cosmopolitan on June 17, 2017 was truly a Five Star experience. Prior to the wedding we met with Eileen and Scott several times to plan the event. They were incredible with attention to every single detail. The venue is classy and glamorous. My daughter decided to get married indoors due to the weather. The wedding ceremony was performed on the lower level. There were approximately 170 guests. As each one entered the venue they were greeted with a glass of champagne. The wedding room was very elegant and was spacious. After the wedding ceremony the guests went upstairs to the cocktail hour which was out of this world. The bridal party went up to the lush bridal suites, then soon to join the guests. The cocktail hour had every food station that you could have imagined. This including numerous carving stations and vodka ice luges. The food alone at the cocktail hour was more than enough for the whole wedding. The stairs that lead from the bridal suite to the Diamond Ball room was amazing for the bride’s entrance. The special lighting and the dance floor really set the mood. The different entrees at dinner were delicious. The headwaiter, servers and bartenders were there to please. Then the night concluded with desserts of every kind. This also included a cotton candy and popcorn machine. A Five Star experience. The Cosmopolitan is highly recommended for any type of event. Great job Eileen and Scott. Thank you, Kevin Hanrahan.
I was recently involved in helping plan a Sweet 16 for a friends daughter. We met with Eileen And Scott who were so helpful with the planning process. All of the ideas and recommendations were exactly what we were looking for. The venue was beautiful and clean, staff was attentive and the food was tasty especially cocktail which is my favorite. The guests had a fantastic time and the princess had a smile all night which is really all that matters. I recommend Cosmopolitan all the time you won’t be sorry.
Scott and Eileen are the best! Our wedding was a dream and everything went perfectly and was far beyond what I could have ever imagined. The service was exceptional, the food was delicious and this space is beyond gorgeous. Thank you for making our dreams come true! We love you!
The cocktail hour food was especially good. The staff was pleasant and kept moving. Decor was bright and beautiful. Everyone I spoke with was impressed with the food and drinks. We all had a blast. My brother n me witnessed the manager quietly take care of a problematic guest and made sure that very few were aware that this guy was acting up. Not easy to do with a room full of people and a party to keep happy. I was only a guest with no knowledge of the pricing, hence my 4 star rating.
I recently attended a wedding and it was spectacular from beginning to end! The elaborate main entrance leads you into a breathtaking mirrored foyer reminiscent of "Glamour Hollywood" days meets Modern Day Elegance! The service was very professional and there was tremendous attention to every detail. For me it's all about the ambiance and I wasn't disappointed, especially with the large open dining room, sweeping staircase and elaborate lighting. And oh, the food was great too!
Cosmopolitan is the venue that my wife and I chose to have the day of our dreams. From the minute my wife walked in, she new that it was the place we were going to pick. We have to say that we are so glad that we did. We had our wedding on September 1, 2017 and had about 250 guests. We have gotten so many comments from our guests telling us that our wedding was just "over the top" amazing. From the spectacular venue, the immense amount of delicious food, to the professional service, we can't say enough about the Cosmopolitan. Eileen, Scott and the entire staff were very warm, professional and accommodating. Thank you Cosmopolitan for giving us the most perfect wedding day.
My husband and I had our wedding on June 17th, 2017 at the Cosmopolitan. The venue was recently renovated and is absolutely beautiful. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception on location and the service and staff was excellent. The cocktail hour had 10 different food stations and ice sculptures which blew away the guests. We had a custom menu at the reception to make it unique to what we wanted and had a fantastic time. Scott and Eileen were so helpful and made sure everything was perfect, they went above and beyond. My friends and family are still talking about how good of a time they had and how it was the best wedding they have every been too. I would definitely recommend. 5 Star Venue
I had my wedding at this venue in August 2017. I must say that the venue is very pretty and matched what I wanted as far as glitter/sparkles. Compared to the venue pricing where I've searched all around before this was affordable. Eileen was very nice on my wedding day, and the days leading up to it. At times there were some sketchy things going on (food tasting/where we would have cocktail hour), but in the end it ended up being okay. I had to take a star off because of Scott. He is one of the owners. I was not pleased with him at all, and had an uncomfortable feeling about him since i met him. The day of my wedding he came off so harsh to myself, as well as my wedding party. I don't believe that he is even aware of how he speaks to people. A bad taste was left in my mouth because of this. If planning on having an event here I would say get everything that is said down on paper when it is said, or record everything on your phone so that you do not get gypped. I will also say that for a wedding with 120 people the foyer is a bit too small.
I was panicking at the last minute to find a venue!! Eileen told me not to worry and she would help accommodate my needs, I met with her and Scott and boy was she right I couldn't be any happier!! The venue is gorgeous, food taste amazing my daughter's wedding reception was a blast!!! Guest is still talking about it! Looking forward to doing a birthday party there in November for my husband! Thanks again guys a day to remember:)
So great!Reviewed on 7/04/2015 Tamara E
I had my wedding at the Grand Chalet/Cosmopolitan on July 2, 2015. They're in the middle of renovations, but what they have done so far looks so beautiful! Eileen was really helpful throughout the whole process and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The guests raved about the food, desserts, and cake and felt the room looked beautiful. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!
Best bridal shower ever!Reviewed on 8/15/2012 Jennifer M

Ceremony & Reception SiteReviewed on 12/14/2010 Keriann C
A beautiful site to have a wedding. The food was tasty & nicely presented and the price is great because you get so much included in the packages. Had some minor miscommunication, but I was able to resolve it by changing some of my plans last minute.
BeautifulReviewed on 11/20/2010 Caren B
Our wedding was very beautiful. We had our ceremony outside and reception inside. It was wonderful and the food was AWESOME. I would use the Chalet as a venue for other events. Only bad thing is that because there are more than one wedding going on at the same time there you have the chance of having a bride from another event walk through your reception area (which happened to me, thank goodness none of my guest were there).
Perfect!!!Reviewed on 11/14/2010 Karen H
I cannot praise this place enough. The entire staff was so fantastic!! From the very first meeting through the wedding reception everyone was very accommodating. We were married a month ago and our guests are still raving about the food. All of our guests were blown away by everything. Our Maitre’d Scott was perfect; very professional but personable. He was very attentive to my husband and myself, making sure we had everything we wanted and more! Our day was flawless thanks to the staff at the Grand Chalet. We would highly recommend them and have. We could not have been happier with the Grand Chalet!!!!!!
A bit of confusion...Reviewed on 10/11/2010 mike P
Besides my cake being the wrong color, and paying for chair covers for my band (that were never set up so my band had to eat in my bridal suite), and also with the fact that it took 2 hours to serve dinner..it was a very nice place. The food was great and our matrondee was even greater. He was very attentive and made sure that my husband and I were happy. For larger groups, I would suggest that dinner start immediately as guests are seated. Because it took 2 hours to serve, my band was not able to play the 3 sets that they were contracted for (since we lost one hour of party time). In all, the food was great and the staff was wonderful; I just regret not walking into the room before the event so that I could have noticed the wrong cake and the missing table and chair covers that I paid for.
Meet The President
With over 22 years of experience as a banquet venue entrepreneur, Eileen successfully transformed her prior venue with a multi-million dollar transformation to an upscale, contemporary-chic venue. Although it was a long hall, it was well worth it, as there is a lot of "Buzz" and excitement for the opening of Cosmopolitan. Her passion for the business reflects in her success and her team continues to stand behind to help her exceed . . . Above and Beyond.
